Don’t Quit!

When things go wrong, as the sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but DON’T you quit.
Life is strange with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out,
DON’T give up through the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,
It’s when things seem worst,
That you must NOT quit!

I received this poem matted and framed from my High School Accounting and Business Teacher.  Sometimes we need to be reminded to keep climbing the mountain, because it will be worth it in the end.

Today I am Thankful for words of inspiration and hope.
